Prosecutors Training

May 30, 2018  | 

State, Federal, and local prosecutors in Mississippi represent victims of crime in the criminal justice legal system, by presenting the facts and evidence of a criminal case in court, and ensuring that a victim’s story is heard. It is crucial for Mississippi’s prosecutors to be constantly updated as law changes, scientific advancements, and new technology come at a rapid pace.

The Attorney General’s Prosecutor Training Division develops and coordinates continuing legal education classes and conferences for full time and part-time prosecutors across the State of Mississippi. Two major conferences and several customized training classes each year provide prosecutors with resources and information that are needed to help prosecutors protect the rights of our citizens who are victimized.
